We doubted if we should go there at all. But it turned out it would be a big mistake not to visit this house. Order tickets in advance for a day you want and better in the morning time. The building a stunning example of...More

I went around 2 hours before closing time. Before I reached the ticket desk, one of the ladies started to tell me the price. I told her I had the Firenze Card (museum pass) and she claimed she did not know what it was until...More

We visited this museum after many recommendations. Just a short distance from the town centre but a wonderful place to visit. We were lucky to arrive when there were free spaces to allow us onto the third floor kitchen area. Beautiful furniture and wall decorations....More

The galleries are wonderful, of course, but this made such a change - being a recreation of a house the objects are not arranged by ordered groups, but randomly, as they would be in a house. It made the whole visit thoroughly serendipitous, as we...More

It feels more like a house than a museum and less exagerately decorated so it feels also like a resting point after all those frescoes

It was one of our best experiences in Florence. Even on Sunday, when there were tourist crowds almost everywhere in the city center, this palazzo remained a “havre de paix”. The inner court with the main staircase is in the middle of restoration works now...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

The museum does public tours of all floors at 10, 11,and 12 on “normal open days”. Those days are specified on their website (which I cannot link to here). I would recommend getting there early by 15 minutes or so to secure... More
